Well finally I'm going to be releasing the big hak so you people can get a head start in downloading it, I'll be releasing two very small ones later as well once I've finalized them (the 2da and tlk rars)
This download is pretty big (87.6MB) but it's chock full of some great things. Some you've seen in the other thread, some still to be a surprise.
Download the archive from either of the following two places:
In case you're wondering we're trying to split some bandwidth with OneST8's server and the Layonara server to ensure L doesn't exceed his cap.
Okay this will be my thread updating the changes coming soon and give you folks a head start.
To start, Layonara now supports over 250 new heads. These will be included in the next update. However, in order to be able to select these heads at character creation you will have to download a seperate heads archive for your override folder.
You will NOT need to download this archive to see the players with the new heads. It is only if you wish to use one when you create a character. The heads will be in a hak update I'll talk about soon.
Instructions if you wish to be able to select a new head at character creation:
1. Download http://orth.ca/heads.rar (21MB)
2. Backup your Neverwinter Nights override folder
3. Extract all files in the archive's heads directory directly into the Neverwinter Nights override
4. You will now see the new heads when you create a character.
If the extraction wants to overwrite any existing files, I'd highly recommend you do that to ensure compatibility with the heads that all players are seeing in Layonara and to fix any ones that might be buggy and updated. (Also why I suggest you backup)
Oh and before anyone asks, no we will not be LETOing characters to change their heads, unless there is some Character Development or a CDQ reason for so.
That's it for now.
*Plenarius sits in prayer looking across Corax Lake early in the morning as Bris rests next to his side*
Mother, She Who Shapes All, the heart of Layonara, the key to all. Guide my hand and prayers to defend Nature. The enemies are moving, the time is now. We need your wisdom, your guiding hand. Turn your attentions to our lands for a breath. Alert those in the pantheon. Please Mother, Nature must prevail. Without Nature, there is nothing. You are the heart of all that happens this time. Help me help you. I am certain that the Great Oak must be protected at all costs. This I will vow. Let me know what else I can do to push the forces back.
*Plenarius sends some of his winged friends to travel across the land spreading news of a dire importance, he leaves notes tacked on inns and speaks to the animals and all creatures*
The other nigh as Brisbane and I spoke with my old mentor in Vale, he helped us come to a realization. The Gods are losing touch with Layonara. Involved in their wars, they are fading as the powers on the land rise. I ask you all now, regardless of deity, to spend some time to reflect in prayer and worship of your deity. Let them know we need them, we want them, help us turn the tide. Let them hear many voices calling for their attentions returned to the mortal realm. The time is almost lost, we need you. Blood is marching, his minions are on the move. Do not let history repeat himself. Recall what happened with the Dragons warring and Blood. It's in dire jeopardy of happening again, but this time vengeance is on his palette as well.
//If you are inclined please take the time to "pray/offer/worship" in this thread. I'd like to see this thread get as big as some of our Just For Fun ones.
Overheard in the Hotel Layonara:
Nearby is an adolescent, red faced and out of breath, speaking with what appears to be his mother who is cleaning one of the rooms.
I'm telling you it was just like in the stories with the pictures....they were there, in the Forest of Mists, hunched over a man and he was consumed entirely as she touched him! I was so scared I ran and ran....
Ever wanted to recall something your 24 INT character shouldn't be forgetting? Or your Wise old cleric forgot something last week.
Under your [Game Options] section in the nwnplayer.ini add the following line:
The chat log gets created in your logs folder naturally, something like nwClient.log
If you want to keep your logs rotating so they never get erased (very handy thing or else every time you start up nwn you will lose your last log), check out this utility on the vault.
As of the next update, when a player respawns he/she will be sent to the Void. The system then performs some functions and once it's done after about 15-20 seconds, it will send you to your Bind point. If your bind point is on another server it will boot you from the game. You then reconnect to the server where your bindstone is and you will be transported there.
While we're not fully there with our plans with the pipe system, we'll be introducing some new items in the process of smoking pipeleaf. Currently Implemented:

Varying xp penalties to the caster based on deity feelings, spell and whether they have a soul stone or not.
Soulstones will now be around 200gp.
Please view this thread for changes to the xp penalties to the clerics who cast Raise Dead or Resurrection.
We will no longer replace items that are dropped on the ground due to inventories being full.
If this has happened to you, the only way to ensure you don't lose your item, you must make room for your shield/weapon, pick it up, save and log off and back on immediately.
There will be no exceptions.
Posted in Hlint, Port Hampshire, Karthy and Pranzis Wanted: Party to examine the state of the Lost Souls Swamp and the Wizard in the dungeon in it's depths. I need to know if anything's changed since the last occurence of the red moon. We may also stop at Bone Hill and examine some things there. All are welcome except those who senselessly harm Nature.

If your character name, Bioware name or both are long, you may experience difficulties with certain aspects of the game not working. This includes, but is not limited to subraces, oxen, cnr, houses, bank vaults and quest journals.
One of the things I'd suggest is you create a new and shorter Bioware name to play under. You can almost be assured everything will work correct with a Bioware name and Character name that do not exceed a combined 26 characters. I know this sounds really short, but if your character needs to have an initial instead of their full name, then all the more RP when you meet someone.
Just a helpful tip as I believe quite a few of the bug reports are due to this.
// Perhaps a mod can sticky this as well.

My spirit has been touched by excess. Wine. Food. Pleasure. It is as though Xeen has focused her attentions upon me. Again. I'm not sure if I wrote about it, but I remember Her interest towards me before. What does this mean? What does the Mother think of this?
Have You taken notice of my interest in excessive pleasure recently Katia? Or are You more concerned with the Dark and Tree Fathers and Raven and the steady march of the forests to Mistone? Are Your blossoms all safe? What of Eon's plans? Is this all tied together?
I will seek as many answers as possible.
If you have a custom portrait and wish other players to be able to see it please post your links in this thread.
